and the projects begin...

this summer, i got a sewing machine and found that i love sewing things... it is such a great feeling to create something that can be touched, viewed, and used! so, ever since i have thought about baby mccleskey, i have been so excited thinking about things i could sew for him/her. a
couple weeks after finding out the news, i went to my friend mandy's house and learned to applique.

these are some of the outfits that i made...

of course, we have no idea if this baby will be a boy or a girl, but it is still fun to create outfits for both. whichever one we do not have, i will have extra baby shower gifts to give!

here are some more items i have made since then... (some out of drew's old tshirts)

i still need to learn to make a button hole (all the bibs are unfinished). in seeing how much fun this is to create stuff for the babe, i think there is no hope for us to wait to find out the gender. i am already dying to find out!
